AMD lowers Q3 forecast

Written by Fudzilla staff


Weak demand to blame
AMD has officially lowered its Q3 outlook and it expects revenues to drop by 1 to 4 percent for the current fiscal quarter, which ends tomorrow, September 25.

The chipmaker had originally expected to report seasonally stronger revenues in Q3, however, weak demand in the consumer market has forced it to revise its outlook. AMD is not the only company affected by the slower than expected recovery, as Intel has also reduced its optimistic forecast some time ago.

Analysts are somewhat concerned about recent developments, as the economic recovery doesn’t seem to be progressing quite as well as expected. Apparently consumers are still far from enthusiastic and many in the market are worried about a double-dip depression.

It’s worth noting that AMD has managed to sail through very tough times in recent quarters and that it’s looking much better than a year or two ago despite this setback.
